Storyline

Thriller about mysterious murders that take place on a film location. Which of the crew is guilty? Or is it someone from outside? Keeps you guessing till the end. No song and dance numbers to dilute the suspense here, just a plain old-fashioned who-done-it, as good as they come. Written by ajmal hussain <ajji@nightmail.com>

Nice suspense thriller
22 September 2012 | by (Pakistan) – See all my reviews

I have watched this movie yesterday after reading comments on internet about this movie. Many people on different websites called this movie all time best suspense thriller of Hindi cinema. So I start watching it with lots of expectation and I must say It live up to my expectation to some extend.

It has star cast and looks like VVC's first real effort in bollywood. All actors acted well specially Nasiruddin Shah and Shabana Azmi. Really liked Amol Palekar's style of dilevering dialougs in soft and sweet voice and in humble style.

Location was perfect for this film. Cold and cloudy atmosphere added some extra effect to theme of this movie. I am sure anyone can enjoy this movie even in 2012.

It positively has suspense and trill because I read some comment here that this movie has less suspense and more humor.

If you like this movie then must watch "Death on river Nile (1978 film)", you will surely like it as well.
